About Exploration Place

Opened in April 2000 after a $62 million fundraising campaign, Exploration Place is the largest science and discovery center in the state of Kansas.  With a mission “to inspire a deeper interest in science and technology through creative and fun experiences for all” the museum attracts about 300,000 visitors per year to its location in downtown Wichita.  Additionally, the organization has an extensive portfolio of outreach programs that reach about 50,000 students per year across Kansas.


Exploration Place recently embarked on an ambitious five-year strategic plan intended to increase on-site attendance to more than 500,000 visitors per year.  Design and fundraising are underway for a world-class “destination playscape” on the museum’s 20 acre riverfront property, scheduled to open in late 2025. In addition, a 1500 capacity public amphitheater park will be opening in fall 2024.


With a strong Board and established senior leadership team, the organization recently renewed its 5-year core funding agreement with Sedgwick County.
